L-E-V Dance Company derives its name from the Hebrew word for heart (lev). OCD Love, the company’s latest work, is a powerful piece danced to pulsating techno beats created by DJ Ori Lichtik, one of the pioneers of techno in Israel. The piece deals with obsessive-compulsive disorder, which poses challenges for love and for life; it is about love that always misses or lovers who keep missing each other. The brainchild of choreographer Sharon Eyal, former dancer and resident choreographer with Batsheva, and arts and rave producer Gai Behar, L-E-V will make its ArtPower debut with this piece, performed by six astoundingly agile dancers

“The company (pronounced lev) is new . . . but it has a defined style that it takes most troupes years to develop.”—New York Times
